Random homework assignments count for points. Each homework that counts is worth 2 points. Work must be shown to receive credit. Half credit is possible on incomplete assignments if work is shown and at least half of the assignment is complete.
Each student received a homework pass already. Students can sign it, date it, and indicate the assignment to receive full credit. It may be used as 5 points bonus on a test at the end of the 9-weeks IF there are no zeroes in the homework column. If it is not used during the first 9-weeks, it may carry over to another 9-weeks.
A new bonus problem is put up every Monday. Students must copy the entire problem and show work in an attempt to receive 1 bonus point. Correct solutions will receive an additional bonus point. Problems must be submitted by Friday to receive any bonus.
Class is held in the MS Computer Lab every Day 6 to work on Study Island Each assignment (sometimes 2 in a day) will receive a 3 point test grade. Full credit will be received for 20 questions done with a ribbon. A grade will be entered on Day 6. If it is not a 3, students will be permitted to continue to work on it at home throughout the week to have the grade adjusted by the next Day 6. Arrangements can be made to use a school computer before or after school for students who do not have internet access at home.
